My message was blocked – Google Product Forums

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/03/18

Cool: https://support.google.com/mail/?p=RfcMessageNonCompliant

So Google does RFC checkking: [Archive.isMy message was blocked – Google Product Forums and shows bot the above link and this in the SMTP protocol:

“Our system has detected that this message is not RFC 5322 compliant,”

After that is the actual reason (for instance no From).

GitHub – ArchiveTeam/googleplus-grab: Archiving Google+.

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/03/18

Soon this is a thing of the past, but for just a few more days, you can help: Archiving Google+.

Either run this project: [WayBack] GitHub – ArchiveTeam/googleplus-grab: Archiving Google+.

Or even better: run the appliance, and help the WayBack machine with any archiving projects setup by the virtual appliance: the [WayBack] ArchiveTeam Warrior – Archiveteam.

See some of their other pages for more background information:

You can donate both to the archive team, and the internet archive:

How is G+ archiving doing?

The tracker is well under way: [WayBack] Googleplus tracker Dashboard. History: archive.is 1; archive.is 2

Viewing is simple, but what about saving?

The WayBack machine has a few APIs (see[WayBack] Wayback Machine APIs | Internet Archive), and includes support for [WayBack] JSONP – Wikipedia.

Example URLs for the most simple API:

Bye, Bye, Google · Bogdan Popa

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/28

Interesting approach: saying good bye isn’t that hard if you do not share a lot things with other people through it.

[WayBackBye, Bye, Google · Bogdan Popa:

I spent this past weekend de-Google-ifying my life and, despite my expectations, it wasn’t too hard to do. I started by moving all of my websites off of Google App Engine and onto a dedicated box that I had already owned. That was straightforward enough. Next, I removed any Google Analytics snippets from each of them and replaced those with my own analytics server that I had built a while back (it doesn’t store any PII, only aggregate information (and very little of that, too)).

Navigation bar notifications for Google web products will go away on March 7, 2019. Via Manage your notifications – Google Account Help

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/08

After March 7, 2019, notifications for Google web products will no longer be accessible from the navigation bar.

[WayBackManage your notifications – Google Account Help has more details, but it does not look good.

More Google stuff is dying, almost every month now. For a list of dying products see: [WayBackdidgoogleshutdown.com

Given more is dying, and the increased lack of confidence many people have in Google, more people are abandoning Google. More on that in a future post.

For now: [WayBack] “Manage your Notifications”: After March 7, 2019, notifications for Google web products will no longer be accessible from the navigation bar. If you’d l… – Edward Morbius – Google+

“Manage your Notifications”: After March 7, 2019, notifications for Google web products will no longer be accessible from the navigation bar. If you’d like to receive similar notifications in the future, you can update the notification settings for your individual Google products.

As usual, it’s not clear whether or not this will affect the notifications widget on G+ itself. Google’s standards for clarity in exposition remain uncorrupted. Which is to say: entirely inadequate.

Otherwise, the article addresses Google Photos, Hangouts Chat, and Google+ (G Suite users).

Update: Further close reading suggests that Consumer Google+ will lose Notifications on March 7:

Note: Google+ notifications are available for G Suite users only.
